 Monalisa is one of the world famous painting by Leonardo da Vinci. But the Mona Lisa painting is not just one. There is also another Mona Lisa that is believed to have been painted by Da Vinci.
  The world-famous original Mona Lisa is housed in the famous Louvre Museum in Paris. The second Mona Lisa is in a private collection.

  The portrait of Lisa del Giocondo, the wife of an aristocrat in Italy, is generally thought to be the familiar Mona Lisa. It is believed that it was painted between 1503 and 1516. But before that, it was known that Da Vinci had painted a picture. It is called 'The Isleworth Monalisa'.In 1913 an English man Hugh Blaker spotted and acquired this painting from a house in Somerset, south-west Engaland. He kept this painting in his studio in Isleworth, west London. This led to the naming, 'The Isleworth Monalisa'. Later Henry F Pulitzer bought this painting and argued that it was the original painting portrayed by da Vinci.

 Many artists, researchers, and historians have executed the assertion that both are portraits of the same person da Vinci himself portrayed, and that both are portrayals of two very similar people. According to da Vinci's biography by Giorgio Vasari, da Vinci had begun to paint Mona Lisa in 1503, but he can't finish it. However, complete painting of Italian woman portrayed again in 1517. This was shortly before Da Vinci's death. This painting had been believed to be kept in the Louvre museum from the beginning of 1797. Some argue that the Mona Lisa was the first to leave Da Vinci painted and unfinished. It is also thought that Da Vinci or someone else completed.
  After Pulitzer's death, the painting was taken by his partner and was shown around the world again in 2012. In the subsequent detailed studies, several researchers have confirmed that the painting was created by Da Vinci himself. But many questions about the painting remain unanswered!
